Compassion During Covid

Associate Hardship Fund - Your
Compassion During Covid

When COVID-19 struck, our employees and the community responded to the need.

The St. Elizabeth Hospital Foundation and Mercy Health Foundation received several requests from associates to support their basic needs during the COVID transition starting in March through June. We provided $12,947 in support of our associates at Ascension St. Elizabeth, Calumet and Mercy Hospitals and our Ascension Medical Group clinics. Following is a breakdown of the gift certificates we have purchased and bills we paid on behalf of our associates. 

  • Groceries: $7,299
  • Rent/Mortgage: $2,169
  • Utilities: $1,948
  • Medical Expenses: $531
  • Auto Repairs: $1,000

Thank You, Donors!

We are so thankful to our generous donors for their financial resources to support our associates. With gifts from generous local donors, we are able to continue to work toward improving the health of our communities.

Thank you, too, to our associates and caregivers for all you do!

Your gift goes right to work, right in your community.
